Two media Apprenticeships up for grabs at an award-winning music college

We are delighted to announce a brand new media and art Apprenticeship programme.

The Point Blank Apprenticeship will provide lucky young people with a unique experience of paid full-time employment combined with free training at Point Blank Music College in Hoxton. The Apprenticeship is for 16 – 18 year olds in Islington and is ideal for anyone with a creative flair and an interest in music and media, and a desire to work with other young people.

Islington has one of the highest rates in Greater London of young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET); Point Blank aims to make real changes in young people’s lives, redirecting their energies into creative channels, leading to an increase in self-esteem and the desire to continue in employment, education and training. With proven experience in delivering challenging work to young people who are NEET, Point Blank is perfectly placed to create an engaging and unique pathway into the world of work.

The two successful applicants will gain paid employment, assisting Point Blank’s Community Arts tutors in the delivery of media projects to young people across London; they will also receive accredited media training at Point Blank and will work towards a Creative Apprenticeship at City and Islington College.

This is an exciting opportunity for Islington youth who are looking to kick-start a career in the creative industries.
